ABOUT BOOK
Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine, published by Simon & Schuster. Here's a short blurb:
“Drawing on her experience as a Tibetan Buddhist nun turned mother who became a best selling author and world renowned Buddhist teacher Lama Tsultrim Allione offers a guide for women to access a previously forbidden aspect of the feminine: the fierce wise dakini, whose juicy potency is needed to meet the gale force winds of the current world situation. Nasty woman and pussy power translate into a dynamic spiritual model based on 1000-year-old tradition coming from Tibet. Through the Mandala of the Five Dakinis, a universal template of wholeness, each of the five dakinis transforms an emotional poison into wisdom.”



ABOUT LAMA TSULTRIM ALLIONE



Lama Tsultrim Allione, author and international teacher, co-founded Tara Mandala with her late husband, David Petit, in 1993. While living in the Himalayas in the 1970s, she was inspired by the vision of creating a retreat center in the West. She was ordained as a Tibetan nun in 1970 at the age of 22 by His Holiness the 16th Karmapa. At the age of 26, after four years as a nun, she returned her monastic vows, then married and raised a family of three children. While raising her children she earned a Master’s degree in Buddhist Studies and Women’s Studies from Antioch University. Author of Women of Wisdom, a groundbreaking book on the lives of great Tibetan women practitioners, Lama Tsultrim also authored the National Best Seller, Feeding Your Demons: Ancient Wisdom for Resolving Inner Conflict, now translated into twelve languages. Feeding Your Demons presents Lama Tsultrim’s pioneering technique based on Chöd, using five steps to nurture the parts of ourselves we usually fight against. Numerous audio programs, DVDs, and magazine articles have been produced about her life and work, including Feeding Your Demons: The Life and Work of Lama Tsultrim Allione, a one-hour documentary by Jaap Verhoeven produced by Dutch TV.



For many years, she has focused on the teachings from the lineage of Machig Labdrön, the 11th century Tibetan yogini who founded the Chöd lineage. In 2007 while traveling in Tibet, Lama Tsultrim was recognized as an emanation of Machig Labdrön by the resident lama at Machig Labdrön’s monastery in Tibet, Zangri Khamar. In 2012 she was given the Machig empowerment by H.H. the 17th Karmapa at Chang Chub Jong in India.



In 2009, Lama Tsultrim Allione was selected by an esteemed committee of scholars and practitioners to receive the international “Outstanding Woman in Buddhism” Award given in Bangkok, Thailand. Her teaching inspiration comes from her sublime Tibetan lamas and her experience as a Western woman and a mother. She is now enjoying being the grandmother of six and is currently working on her new book, Wisdom Rising: Journey into the Mandala of the Empowered Feminine, to be published by Simon and Schuster in May 2018. At the same time, Lama Tsultrim continues to guide Tara Mandala and thousands of students around the world.
